Ride offer results in meth arrest

Felony Drugs

Possession of methamphetamine resulted in the arrest of one Victor resident.

Billy Ray Martin, 46, of Victor was charged with criminal possession of dangerous drugs, a felony.

According to the charging affidavit, a Ravalli County Sheriff's deputy saw Martin walking in the area of Grantsdale Road and Blood Lane on the evening of Dec. 30. He offered Martin a ride due to the low temperature and snow-covered roads. Before getting into the car the officer asked about weapons and did a pat search of Martin and asked him to empty his pockets. The deputy said the search turned up a meth pipe and a baggie with powder residue. A field test of the powder confirmed methamphetamine.

Justice Jim Bailey set bail at $1,000, Martin will appear in District Court on Jan. 20 or 21.
